Xi Mingze (simplified Chinese: 习明泽; traditional Chinese: 習明澤; pinyin: Xí Míngzé; [ɕǐ mǐŋ.tsɤ̌]; born 25 June 1992), nicknamed Xiao Muzi (小木子; 'Little Wood'), is the only child of Chinese paramount leader (CPC General Secretary) Xi Jinping and folk singer Peng Liyuan.
Life and education
As the only child of China's top leader, Xi keeps a low profile and not much of her personal information has been revealed to the public.
From 2006 to 2008, she studied French at her high school, Hangzhou Foreign Language School. Xi enrolled at Harvard University, as a freshman in 2010, after a year of undergraduate study at Zhejiang University. She enrolled under a pseudonym, and maintained a low profile. She graduated with A.B. in 2014 and has since returned to China. As of 2015 she is living in Beijing.
Following the 2008 Sichuan earthquake, Xi volunteered as a disaster relief worker for one week in Hanwang, Mianzhu. In 2013, she made her first public appearance with her parents at the Liangjiahe village in Yan'an, Shaanxi province, where they offered Lunar New Year greetings to the locals.
